Smoked acorn squash soup

Smoking the squash with alder wood smoking chips gives this warming soup an intense and distinctive flavour beyond compare. I always make a lot because the smoking time is an hour to two, but this recipe can also be cut in half.

This soup was amazing. Everyone in the house had second and thirds. I wouldn't tell my son what was in it until his third bowl. He doesn't do veggies. I shortened this process considerabley by cooking in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Then split them and backed on cedar planks in the oven until soft. (soaked cedar planks) I also add 1 tsp. of liquid smoke to off set the non grilling. Make a double batch it goes fast.

Delicious! I didnt make it exactly as the recipe called for but it turned out amazing anyway- I didnt smoke the squash-I baked it in the oven until it was soft and scooped it out after. I used turkey bacon instead (it has a smokey flavour too it) cut the butter and sour cream in half too. I wish I had doubled the recipe as it did not last long!! I topped it off with a few toasted pumpkin seeds and yum yum yum!

This is a great addition to Thanksgiving. If you have a smoker the acorn squash can be cooked for a few hours at the same time as the turkey, which gives it exceptional flavor. A keeper for sure!

I sauteed onion and garlic with a bit of the bacon fat and omitted the butter, the squash to be rich enough. After soup was done, I was under impressed. So, I chopped and sauteed two jalapenos and two poblanos to add; tasted great.

WOW !!! This was fantastic. I am a member of a local club and in the fall we have "Soup Saturdays" so I made a large pot. The flavor was awesome. I highly recomend the garnish as it gives a subtle enhancement to the soup. The alder wood is perfect. My wife and I found ourselves nibbling on the squash right from the smoker. A definate repeat.

I made it today. As I harvested it from my garden fresh Acorn. I backed it in a 375 degree oven in shallow baking dish, with water in it. Wrapped it in alumni foil. Mean time,chopped onion, garlic, carrotts, oil in a pan, chopped up five stripes of bacon. Heated the oil, added the onion the garlic, on low flame. Stirring constantly. In mean time I heated 2 cups of chicken bullion. I left chunky zuchini,s, carrots in my soup it is tasting soo good. And I added half and half and more curry to taste.

This was really good! I only used one squash, but didn't scrimp on the bacon, using 4 slices (Applewood Smoked) I also added some onion powder, and was also generous with the fresh parsley. I'll bet the bowl I have left over is even better tomorrow. If I make it again, I'll add more spices.

Wow for the recipe to get me going on using different spices with squash. I did substitute Liquid Smoke rather than smoke on grill and used peanut squash instead. I left out the butter completely. Flavor is fantastic. Way better than I anticipated. Thank you!
